On the Move

With our impending apartment move, another item on our to-do list is the home moving companies. I will get quotes from at least three companies and decide from there. A website called MovingCompaniesOnline.com allows you to do just that. There is a feature called Quick & Free Moving Quote that lets you select moving companies based on your location and preferred moving date.

Also, there is an option to rent a truck instead. In my opinion, this will entail more work since there’ll be no professional movers to assist. If there are big furniture and appliances to be relocated, there is also the danger of damaging them. In effect it may not be worth the money saved.

The company also caters for international shipping of personal effects. With so many people being uprooted or expatriated to different countries, this business is definitely booming these days. The website has quick quote links that will give the required information in a few clicks.

We are toying with the idea of pushing our planned move to early next year. That is because of our busy weekends planned from this month until we leave for vacation by end November. Oh well, we’ll see how favorable the rental market is for us and we’ll decide on the rest of the details thereafter.
